Iran Nuclear Talks Resume at Expert Level in Vienna

U.S. and European Union officials said, Talks among officials from world powers on curbing Iran's controversial nuclear program resumed in Vienna on Wednesday, and the Iranian delegation will join the negotiations on Thursday. U.S. negotiator Wendy Sherman and Helga Schmid, the EU's political director, were part of the meetings on Wednesday in the latest round of talks, which are in their final month before a June 30 deadline for a deal with Iran. Questions arose over whether a deal could be reached on time after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry broke his leg a day after talks with his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, in Geneva over the weekend. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on Wednesday she was confident Kerry would be "part of these talks at the end."
